    I haven't used CL in a corporate job (but a lot for the projects I've worked on since I've been self employed, most recently

  • netfarm

    I work on a metacircular Common Lisp implementation, which makes for a very boring answer. In the next closest thing to a job, I use CL for just about the whole network stack, so really anything would be suitable. But I wouldn't dare throwing a new language into a workplace, and I am not sure how much they would appreciate it.

  • pip

    The Python package installer

    Deployment: in Lisp, either run your app from source, as a script: OK, either deploy a binary. In Python, we don't have binaries. Your app can break because of a third party library, or because of pip itself. Bummer, right? exple: I faced many issues like this one with pip, setuptools and third-party libraries. I remember 1 issue in 4 years, resolved in 5 minutes, when upgrading a Quicklisp dist.

  • ergolib

    A library designed to make programming in Common Lisp easier

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
